In the past few years Siemens Communications changed their name and telecoms brand to Unify and launched the Unify OpenScape Business as replacements for their highly successful Siemens HiCom and HiPath and Openscape Office range of systems that they had marketed for the past 20 years.
The X3, X5 and X8 are “All-In-One” Unified Communications platforms with the ability to support analogue, digital and IP trunks and extensions for up to 500 subscribers.
OpenScape Business combines the best of the HiPath 3000 and OpenScape Office in a unified platform with strong software applications providing a modern and flexible solution for all types of business.
Businesses currently suing a Siemens HiCom, HiPath or Openscape Office product can also use some of the components of their current system including handsets when implementing the new Openscape Office system making upgrading can often be much cheaper than purchasing a new system from alternative manufacturers whilst benefiting from all of the new market features, particularly VoIP and Unified Communications.
OpenScape Business offers small and medium businesses the solution to their demands in one box, providing the easy way from Voice to UCC, from hybrid TDM to full IP, incl. Web Collaboration, voice and fax message boxes, notification service, mobility, a Multimedia Contact Centre and presence status functions. A standalone system up to 500 subscribers and in networked systems up to 1000 subscribers can be connected.
Hardware Platforms available in rack and wall mount.
OpenScape Business X1
Until now there has not really been a solution for small or micro businesses (3 users plus) as of this Aug 2014 the OpenScape Business X1 will be released for sale in the UK for smaller businesses. This system is ideal for the smaller user from 3 users up to 15 users. This is fantastic news for small businesses starting up on a tight budget as the system offers VOIP telephony both SIP trunking and IP clients, voicemail and entry level unified communications.
The system is also extremely flexible to suit customers to just move into any infrastructure as the system will have digital and analogue ports on-board this allows the use of either a traditional telephony cabling or full Cat 5/6 infrastructure, this means customers on a budget are not forced into investing in a full network infrastructure from day 1 and therefore allowing the customer to grow the business at their own rate.
